123rd Boston Marathon®
Monday, April 15, 2019

Boston Strong! The Home for Little Wanderers is in need of two dedicated individuals to run the 123rd Boston Marathon® for the cause of helping vulnerable children and families. Show your support for Boston and for an institution that has been part of the Massachusetts landscape for over 215 years. We invite you to apply to join The Home Team and raise money for kids living in at-risk circumstances.

Whether you're a first-time runner or an experienced marathoner, we welcome everyone to apply (must be at least 18 years of age). Chosen runners are expected to raise a minimum of $10,000 with top consideration given to those who expect to raise more. Meeting our goal of $10,000 per runner will help The Home obtain more marathon numbers next year and do even more for the children in our programs.

Benefits of joining The Home Team include:

  • Fundraising assistance including helping to set up your fundraising website, and tips and support on how you can maximize your fundraising effort
  • Access to a professional trainer to prepare you for race day
  • Branded Home Team apparel
